What's the difference between failing ideas and wildly successful companies?

The answer lies in effective entrepreneurship. Learn how to discern between ideas that are ineffective and ideas that have a real business opportunity. Through hands-on testing and validation outside of the classroom with real-life potential customers and clients, you will discover how to answer the questions "Should my product/service be built?" and, "How can I build a sustainable business around this set of products and services?"

Chris Huang, iX Alum
Founded successful startup, Better Nature
"My time at iX laid down the foundation for me to get a place as a Summer Business Analyst at the McKinsey London office, where I was selected to join a cohort of 12 from over 7,000 applicants. But, rather than playing it safe, I decided to start Better Nature, and truly believe in what I do every day."

Create a social enterprise

Example project you may work on

Your social impact project will involve the development of a novel and sustainable solution for a social challenge. You will spend time experimenting, collaborating and designing your own prototype, framework and business model to address a specific social or environmental challenge identified by your group.

Thoughts
from our alumni.

Saloni Gandhi
Carnegie Mellon University, Class of 2023

Taking an iX course really exposed me to the parts of the industry/work process that aren’t really obvious. Being able to visualize/apply the techniques and processes we learned was a crucial thing that I really liked about iXperience. The amount of feedback and advice you get is very valuable.

Rohan Barad
University of Michigan, Class of 2023

iX taught me how to learn actionable lessons and use it. Then, walk out with the confidence to start something yourself.

Mayita Muvavarirwa
University of Virginia, Class of 2022

iX was a challenging experience, which teached me how to think. It will push you to find your own devices and develop yourself. It's unlike any college course.

Caroline Oudet
Wake Forest University, Class of 2022

I was able to gain incredible skills through the iX program! Working remotely, I learned really important time management and prioritization skills that I believe will be so valuable to my future student and professional experiences.
